I am looking for opinions on what is the best deal in used jeep tjs. What are the pros and cons model year to year. I am going to buy in the next couple of days. I am not interested in a rubicon because they are out of my price range. I am most curious about the transmissions ax15 vs nv3550. I have heard that the automatics suck. Is that true? My plan was to buy a 2000 or newer sport with the nv 3550, but have heard the ax15s were good trannys as well. Also i read in jp one of the editors wouldn't own anything but a 98 99 manual 4.0 tj. I don't know why that is, or what is special about the 98, 99 model year. I will be holding out for the rear dana 44. Any info would be appreciated!
